    You can't get disability if you haven't worked.

    I can't say how massive the fraud issue is with disability, but I know a lot of people that are on it and shouldn't be. I have in fact reported a case. My cousins wife flat told me that she went on disability so she wouldn't be forced to work. She told the doctor she was hearing voices and had a phobia about working or something like that. She was on 100% disability, but don't think she gets that anymore. I also have talked to people who couldn't find work so they made up some problem so they could get some kind of disability. I currently have two family members who are on disability for back problems but mysteriously have no problems when they are out on vacation. All they would have to do to investigate is check out peoples photos on Facebook.

    The only benefits allowed for illegal aliens is using the emergency room for medical emergencies and sending children to public school.

    Yes you can.

    Obamas aunt NEVER WORKED ONE DAY in USA, is not a citizen, and she gets disability, medicaid, and a Apartment.

    The Iraqi civilian workers in Iraq are now getting SSDI, and staying here, becasue they worked a few months in Iraq.

    Just two examples , they have refused my FOIA requests for more foreigners getting SSDI.


    Obviously this story is propoganda, but it proves "never pay" people get disability.

    She probably gets SSI.
    You can't get SSDI without a certain number of credits based on your work.

    There is one loophole, that if you were born with a disability and were/are never married, you can get SSDI based on your parents.

Their yard service business brings in an additional $70,000 per year and - being cash - they of course pay no income taxes either as do none of those on full disability with sideline cash incomes.

    I know there are people who truly are disabled. However, there is NO investigation mechanism even in existence to catch or investigate fraud.
    Why don't you report their lawn care business?

    Many people who have worked their entire life are on disability for ajob related reason. Many people deserve disability.

    I agree that there is way too much fraud connected to this.

    I suggest that anybody who knows is abusing the system to report the. It's easy.

    What happened to all those laws we've passed that made the workplace safer?

    (Sorry, couldn't resist.)
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.
